Flu vaccine effectiveness can vary depending on many different variables. Aside from never leaving your house, what else can be done to lower your chances of getting the flu?
1. Wash your hands! According to the CDC, studies show that hand washing can prevent 1 in 3 stomach/bowel illnesses and 1 in 5 respiratory infections, including the flu! Always wash your hands before you eat, and if you have a cold, wash them after you sneeze and blow your nose.
2. On Guard On Guard is an immune boosting essential oil blend which also happens to smell fantastic! With wild orange peel, clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus and rosemary, it packs a strong punch against those viral infections. Diffuse in a diffuser or use our awesome On Guard antiseptic spray to disinfect hard surfaces. We have plenty in stock!
3. Vitamin D A multitude of studies show that vitamin D is an effective flu preventative. In his research, Dr. Adrian Martineau found that vitamin D supplements reduced the risk of flu infection by 10% in people with normal vitamin D levels and 50% in people with vitamin D deficiency! You can read more about this research HERE. We carry a fantastic vitamin D supplement that is emulsified with cofactors that make it bioavailable (easily absorbable).
